Aquadoodle Review

After seeing how much fun the kids were having with the Aquadoodle Mat (by Spinmaster) at their friend's birthday party, I thought I would get one for them to play with at home.  I went to the toy store, purchased the Aquadoodle Classic Mat and brought it home.

It only came with one pen so I also had to purchase an Aquadoodle Brush and Pen set. The girls were excited as they love to draw and I was excited because they would have something to keep them busy for a bit, but wouldn't create much of a mess. After all, the "paint" in this case is only water. :)

I thought that this was a fun play item that they would actually enjoy using for a long time considering most other toys are usually played with for a mere week before they move onto a different toy. I was right, and the children did want to draw and paint with the Aquadoodle after the first week.


However, after only a week, the mat was no longer as functional as it once was. There would be a delay before drawing wo…

Baby Girl Gift Basket

Above is a baby gift basket I put together for a friend who just had a baby girl. It includes neccesseties for both baby and mommy...... diaper shirts, socks, blankets, a hat, a pink teddy bear, chocolate, tea, and a scented oil burner. She had already received many gifts so I included items that you can never have enough of when you are at home with a new baby.

Top 10 Gifts For a Mom

So many of my friends are having babies, so I thought I would put together a list of top ten gifts for a mom. It seems when you have a new baby, it's all about the bany so I thought I would put together a nice list of things that a new mom (or any mom) would enjoy. Items that would just be for her and nothing baby or child related. For instance, I personally love pre-made meals and other things that would save me time, but a gift like that is something for the whole family and not quite "just for mom".

Here is my list of Top 10 Gifts For a Mom:

1. Fresh and fun, some new make up

2. Books - Maybe one of her favorite hobbies is reading books. This would be a good gift to help her relax

3. Movies - Watching movies is always fun and maybe there are some new releases she could catch up on. I know I am way behind when it comes to new movies!

4. A nice piece of clothing just for her

5. A Spa Gift Card


6. A nice gift basket with her Favorite tea, coffee and treats

7. Jewelry -So…

Home Bakery Bundle Giveaway from Divine.ca

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dr. Oetker for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. My family and I love frozen pizza for so many reasons. For instance, it saves so much time especially on those busy nights when we have so many activities on the go. Also. having a few frozen pizzas ready to bake is much more economical than ordering pizza for delivery when we are having a get together with friends or a family movie night. We often keep Dr. Oetker frozen pizzas on hand, because I find it tastes fresh and has amazing topping combinations. I'm excited to learn that they have a new type of pizza available now. It's called Dr. Oetker Panebello Bakery Crust Pizza  an   and is made with a variety of high quality ingredients. The crust is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, making it taste and feel like fresh artisan bread you would get from a bakery. If you love pizza as much as I do, and would like the chance to win 1 of 5 $500 Home Bakery Bundles, …
